Don't use Crypt Fiend models, use the Nerubian ones, there are variations and they look more like ants and less like spidery dead things.

I'm sure there are also models for various insects on TheHive, if you want to check it out. The banner link is on the left side of the page.

Attached map is an old ant map I was working on.

I would post notes here, but apperently Windows enjoys installing a program on your computer when you restore it, and than asks for a cd-key (which the computer did not ship with) in order to run it.
The fucking hell is that?


Anyway, I don't have wc3 installed at the moment so I can't check exactly what's in it.
The main trigger in it allows a huge amount of information to be tied to any individual unit, much more than the custom value allows.
I added 25,000 to coordinates when saved on to the unit because it removes negative numbers, and 4(or less) digit numbers. When the coordinates are called, they are subtracted by 25,000 to get the real coordinates.

The purpose of this system was to create very frantic looking battles;
1: Unit is ordered by player. order cords are stored on the unit.
2: when an ant attacks it is given an order to move within X distance of the attacked unit. These order coords are not recorded and are ignored.
3: Unit reaches last order (from attacking unit) it is than ordered to it's original, stored order location.

I did not have the time to code in support for order-type I believe, but I may be wrong.

Once it stops moving, it's ordered to it's orignal move location


EDIT: TheHelper has incredibly low upload space. So no map I guess until I find a place to host it, instead of hosting it on this crappy site.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    Heard Houston got hit pretty bad by storms last night. Hope all is well with TH.

    New recipe is another summer dessert Berry and Peach Cheesecake - https://www.thehelper.net/threads/recipe-berry-and-peach-cheesecake.194169/
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
